Vortex Oil Engineering

Vortex Oil Engineering is a Warsaw-based company from the Oil & Gas sector that has developed a solution used in the extraction of crude oil, allowing for a 40% increase in the  raw material extraction. Vortex designs devices which are installed directly in the injection pipeline, acting as a hydroacoustic mill, destroying large residual oil and mineral particles in the injection water stream. The device is modeled and allows for increased oil production in fields with variable water flow without switching to a tertiary improved oil recovery system. It also allows to reduce the costs of wastewater treatment and positively affects the natural environment.
